SCAC and ADRIA AIRWAYS: LOI for 15 SSJ100 and MRO joint venture/26.11.2018
http://www.scac.ru/en/mediacenter/sc...-11-2018/2018/

Quote:
Munich, November 26, 2018 – Minister of industry and trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov said that JSC “Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company” and ADRIA Airways signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for 15 SSJ100. «The delivery is to be started at the beginning of 2019. They will be handed over under a long-term lease arrangement. In addition, both Parties signed Memorandum of Understanding upon establishing an SSJ100 Maintenance and Repair Organization (MRO) at Ljubljana Airport (Slovenia)».

The JSC «Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company» President Alexander Rubtsov, the CEO of ADRIA Airways Holger Kowarsch and AA Aviation’s Managing Director Dr. Martin Vorderwulbecke indicated that the agreements signed opened a new chapter towards a strategic relationship between the Parties:

«It is our pleasure to partner with JSC «Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company».They will totally support ADRIA Airways´ development strategy. During the past two years we were analyzing the SSJ100 type and came to the conclusion that all the technical and operational characteristics of this aircraft would suit best for our strategic goals» – said Holger Kowarsch. He also added that SSJ100 operation would allow to offer more of the current CRJ and Airbus aircraft for ACMI service.

The JSC «Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company» President Alexander Rubtsov stated: «We realize that the SSJ100 after-sales support at the entry to the European market should be organized profoundly and professionally. Together with the ADRIA Airways we will create a joint maintenance and repair organization for SSJ100 at the Ljubljana Airport. That service platform will secure the operational reliability of SSJ100 aircraft in Europe».

Well, too late to rescue the SN ops. Anyway, I see chances for the SSJ in Europe dwindling now the A220 is coming up to speed.

Airlines that will be able to afford the slightly higher leases of the A220 will choose that platform. So SSJ will again remain as a niche aircraft for airlines not wanting/able to operate Western planes (DPRK, Cuba, Iran, some African & Latin American ones) and as a regional contender in the CIS countries for the A220.

As for the Adria machines, will these be new-built ones or Interjet ntu's (they picked up A320neos instead) ?

These aircraft are of different classes and a very big difference in price.
It seems to me that the only problem of the Superjet 100 in Europe is repair services. If Sukhoi develops a good service base and logistics, it will be much easier to compete with other aircraft.

i agree. nothing wrong with the superjet's engineering and design. its pretty modern.
so far everything is related to its management and supply chain. they should have spent more time on stabilizing it.

i hope when the MS21 (or do they still use MC?) comes about, there will be a much beter system because this is a really promising plane!

engineers shouldnt be punished for the failurs of the management side

On the contrary, I actually see the prospects for Superjet 100 (no longer Sukhoi) actually increasing, and the recent takeup by Adria Airways and S7 Airlines just proves it.

The SJ100 became a lot more attractive when it gained a second variant, with S7 Airlines going ahead with SJ75. With the advent of low-cost carriers in Eastern Europe, Russia and CIS, I could see a plausible SSJ130 becoming very attractive regional and domestic operations. MC-21, in my opinion, was not designed for LCCs, and this may come to haunt it because I personally think the MC21 is too spacious for its own good.

Superjet 100 loses its Sukhoi nametag

Irkut Corporation, producer of the MC-21 airliner, has been handed full control of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC), manufacturer of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) regional jet, after receiving all of SCAC’s shares.

SCAC was previously fully owned by Sukhoi Company and the change of ownership is part of an overall plan to create a fully-fledged, autonomous commercial aviation division under the auspices of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) parent company. The decision has been accepted by both planemakers, whose boards of directors have approved the switch.

As a result of the corporate switch, UAC’s main commercial aircraft programmes are now the SSJ100 regional jet, the narrow-body MC-21, and the wide-body CR929 (C for China and R for Russia) which is being jointly developed by UAC with China’s COMAC. These projects are therefore no longer associated with a specific individual local manufacturer.

The newly formed division with Irkut at its core is expected to later add other companies involved in the design and production of commercial aircraft, including the Yakovlev Design Bureau, Aerocomposite and others. The new structure will have a single engineering centre tasked with “combining the intellectual resources of all companies in developing the existing and respective programmes,” including Superjet and MC-21, says a statement. The marketing, sales and aftersales support functions for all commercial projects will also be combined under this single structure, “consolidating cooperation with suppliers and partners within prospective projects.” All current relevant, valid licences and certificates are likely to be sustained.

the thing with Russian design bureaus is that Sukhoi, Tupolev, Yak no longer have the same meaning.

the factories have so much control over design, that in reality the companies really should be
IAPO, KNAAPO, NAPO, etc.

The last scheduled SSJ flight in the EU was earlier today and Brussels Airlines have handed their SSJ back to Cityjet now. Cityjet will not take any more SSJs after all the problems they had with them going technical while leased to Brussels Airlines.

Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, producer of Sukhoi Superjet 100 planes, and the Irish airline CityJet may cancel their cooperation in 2019, President of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Alexander Rubtsov told reporters.

Earlier, Brussels Airlines, which subleased SSJ-100 aircraft from CityJet, announced its decision to abandon the aircraft.
This recent article (after google translate) blames engine supplier Safran

https://www.vedomosti.ru/business/ar...00-malo-letaet

Quote:
SSJ100 are delivered to airlines since 2011, but so far they fly very little. The average flight time in Russia in 2017 was a meager 3.3 hours per day. The reason is the shortage and long delivery time of spare parts for failures. The regional regional Embraer E170, which in 2017 began to operate exclusively on short regional S7 Airlines routes, flew last year, on average, 6 hours a day. The raid of medium-haul liners (mainly Airbus 320/321 and Boeing 737) is about 10 hours a day.

Their average flight time in Russia is only 3–3.7 hours per day.

SaM146 problems occur in the so-called hot part of the engine, where fuel is burned. It delivers Safran, claim all the interlocutors of "Vedomosti". Cracks may appear in the combustion chambers or oil collectors after 2000–4000 flight hours (that is, in the second year of the aircraft’s operation), and sometimes after 1000 flight hours, four interlocutors explain. The engine must be sent to overhaul. Although the manufacturer promises that before the overhaul the engine should work 7500-8000 hours. This is a constructive flaw, says one of the interlocutors of "Vedomosti".

Azimut Airlines has already crashed three engines on eight aircraft, despite the fact that three vessels were received by new ones and have been in operation since September 2017, and the remaining five since 2018, says a person close to the company.
Things are no better in Mexico.

Mexican carrier Interjet received Ps733 million ($39.6 million) in compensation for maintenance costs for its Sukhoi Superjet 100 fleet, after the airline was forced to ground at least four SSJ100s in the past year or so.

Well this is depressing. Really hoped someone would have a go at Boeing and Airbus. Doesn’t bode well for their widebody aircraft, that they are working on with COMAC.

Don't worry. CR-929 won't have French engines.

Meanwhile, the company has recently announced that the programme is running two years ahead of initial schedule, and assembly of the first prototype is now scheduled for 2021, followed by the maiden flight in 2023 and entry into service in 2025.

yep. disappointing indeed, and it will probably affect international sales of the MC/MS-21 since it hasn't helped improve risk perceptions of western airliners on Russian types

I should point out that the SSJ is due back in scheduled service in the EU later this year with Adria, a Slovenian Airline.

For now 4 of the 7 SSJs that Cityjet took in recent years are in storage in Venice (Sukhoi MRO HQ in Europe) or else in Shannon.

EI-FWA EI-FWB and EI-FWF are @ Cityjet HQ in Dublin.

Superjet 100 production rates reduced by third in 2018

SCAC (Sukhoi Civil AirCraft) has built just 23 SSJ100s in 2018, 11 aircraft short of 2017 output. The significant reduction of production rates is believed to be linked to the shortage of PowerJet SaM146 engines, which power the Russian regional jet. SCAC’s president Alexander Rubtsov earlier explained, that in an effort to improve aircraft after sales support, the manufacturer had to release some of the engines intended for newly produced aircraft to its parent United Engine Corporation for the purpose of creating a pool of spare engines for SSJ100 operators.



In addition to 22 new aircraft delivered in 2018, SCAC also sold four SSJ100s from those it had produced earlier

The irony is western designed and produced part is primary cause of SuperJet underperformance.

Now now.... Let's not blame design, because we all know that's not the reason why SJ isn't selling.

UAC had become so engrossed in demonstrating the SSJ100 readiness for global operation, it was a complete debacle. Had UAC been able to demonstrate that it could provide fast MRO support in Russia itself, RUssia could have been a life lab for organic orders. Personally, I also felt that this need to "Russianize" also sabotaged its chances, because a lot of Airbus and Boeing aircraft orders are determined by the foreign nation's commiment to the components manufacturing of the aircraft. I mean, Moscow's already tried Russianizing with no commercial success. Do they really think they can sell to a global market by Russianizing the SJ?

The SSJ is a good plane, for passengers it is a great plane. I would say the big problem is that Sukhoi, given their background, do not understand the importance of commercial global aftercare services and do not have the corporate culture to adapt to the importance of MRO, not yet anyway,
